Snow is Art

I have been warming up to painting snow scenes. It’s not something I have done very much of – apart from snow capped distant mountains. This is a new challenge to be sure and I’m doing as many reference shots of different snow compositions as I can. I am getting used to having to overdress against the cold before venturing out. Means it takes ages to get pens, pads and camera etc out of 100 pockets. But we get there.

I have done a few sketches from the window where the snow covered pines show against the pure white snow. I’m doing sketches only on this trip, getting the feeling of what I see, and hopefully  get a painting or two out of it.
